The Long Bore!,
This review is from: The Long War: (Long Earth 2) (The Long Earth) (Kindle Edition)
Why is Pratchetts' name on the cover?
This was another dreary novel with characters that were dull, except Lobsang perhaps.
I just didn't root for anyone in this meandering philosophical miasma, of pseudo steampunk, old colonialism and sadly all too recognisable movie references that I knew (nerd or what). The first book was a disappointment and sadly he/they have managed to compound that disappointment.
It appears that there will be a follow up to this, a completion of loose ends and possibly a point to the whole concept of the originally good idea. I will read it when available out of curiosity rather than as an avid fan.
